    Wow, that is a handful of sexy. Nice. Is the blade as colorful as it looks in the photos?

    Not carved. I looks like maybe etched and painted.

    It's actually even more rainbowy in person. It must be some kind of lacquer, because after a day of cutting, cleaning, and wiping, it's still as psychedelic as ever.

    It's also shown 0 reactivity, which is not typical of white steel.

    Probably want to strip that off...I believe Jon posted that it was to protect the blade from moisture in shipping, don't remember what it was, but may not be too food friendly? It is very psychedelic--I like.

    yeah... use acetone to remove that... the mirror finish will be much nicer, but the colors will be gone

    That depends on the quantity of acetone and ventilation of the space

    Seriously though, is there any harm in leaving it on for a bit?

    lol... no real harm in leaving it on other than splotchy patina development... however, 100% of knife makers will tell you to take it off before use

    Nice, it would be very tempting to leave it on. Looks great!
